    Pros

    Being a part of a great team at the theater level.

    Cons

    Benefits are minimal and only there because state required.

    Advice to Management

    Show the employees that they are the most valuable part of the company. They can make you or break you.

    I worked at Regency Theatres part-time

    Pros

    Free popcorn and you can watch free movies, they usually let you bring in a friend or two, people here kinda cool I guess

    Cons

    Customers are incredibly painful to work with, very little opportunity to move up, hours vary greatly depending on the amount of customers

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management is have more constant hours and not cut hours short. People have bills to pay and they're not taking this job for their love of theater maintenance.

    I worked at Regency Theatres part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, lots of camaraderie and similar interests between co-workers. Almost everyone is easy to talk to and we had a lot of fun on the job.

    Cons

    Management at many times don't seem to care.
    Made employees do some questionable tasks.
    Some rewards, especially during busy movie releases.
    It's a weekend job. Weekends are required.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say. Many of them get their suggestions ignored and the company ends up changing for the worse.

    I have been working at Regency Theatres part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will learn how to interact with customers in a very professional manner and understand proper work flow (which is priceless in the service industry).

    Cons

    So concerned about spending and holding onto that extra dollar customers and employees become expendable. Sometimes it feels as if the company believes it's a privilege to work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to not be so reactionary to issues. HR is literally a nonexistent department. Waterhole talk almost entirely consists of how corporate doesn't care so long as the money keeps rolling in and "what they don't know wont hurt them". Disgruntled employees would be less prevalent if maybe it appeared like corporate cared about it's lower employees.

    Pros

    The easiest job you'll ever have!

    Cons

    At a certain age its pathetic to still be working there.

    Advice to Management

    Promote managers that can manage! If the maturity level is not there, don't promote them just because they have been working there since birth.
